Massive Fire Breaks Out at Warner Bros Studio Lot in Los Angeles (VIDEO)

Deadline reported:

A fire that broke out Friday after a transformer blew on the lot of the Warner Bros studio in Burbank has been put out.

Burbank Fire Department Battalion Chief Dave Burke told Deadline it was a transformer fire and it’s out. The first call came at 1:38 p.m. PT, and the fire was knocked down within 30 minutes. There was no damage to buildings and no injuries reported.

Sources told Deadline that power had gone out, and there are images of dark smoke emanating from the lot.

A WBD spokesperson told Deadline that they’re sending all staff home – admittedly most staff are on summer Fridays – out of caution. The spokesperson said that they are launching an investigation, but the fire is thought to have started after a transmitter blew. It was localized on one of the far ends of the lot, ironically near its own fire station, and there were no injuries.

An email sent to all staff said, “There was a fire contained to one building on the main lot this afternoon. The fire is out and there are no reports of inuries. Teams are evaluating impacts to the buildings. Power to the lot has been shut down and is expected to be down for the next couple of hours. If you are still at work, please go home.”
